Shock Theatre

Shock Theatre was a late night TV show in Dayton, Ohio from 1972 to 1985. The program played low budget horror movies with local cut-outs that featured skits, commercial parodies, and satire. For a few years, the show was called "Saturday Night Dead," since the program followed Saturday Night Live on the local station.

The host was Dr. Creep (aka Barry Hobart -- www.drcreep.com). Various characters shared the screen with Dr. Creep over the years; various producers were responsible for the on-screen chaos.

The Shock Theatre years covered on this site are from 1977 to 1980, when obieyoyo trademark and other night vision puppets tm trademark worked on-screen with the Creeper, and John Higgins was producer. Selected segments are being posted on YouTube as they become available at www.youtube.com/shocktheatre.
